Miko is punished by the Twelve Gods.

Cast Edit

Transcript Edit

Panel 1

The air above Azure City rumbles, "rumble, rumble, rumble"

Panel 2

The 12 gods appear.

Panel 3

A lightning-like white energy strikes down from the clouds on the Azure City castle, "ooooooooooooooo!"

Panel 4

The white energy hits Miko directly, pulling her up off her feet. Hinjo, Roy and Belkar shield themselves from the blast.

Panel 5

A blue energy begins to leave her body.

Panel 6

The blue energy, engulfed in the white energy, separates from Miko entirely. Miko is released and falls to the ground, "thunk!, her cloak and boots changed from blue to beige."

Panel 7

Shojo speaks, smiling, blood dripping from his mouth.
Shojo: It appears...
Shojo: ...not everyone... agrees with your...
Shojo: ...analysis.

Panel 8

Shojo dies.
Miko looks at her hands while Hinjo rushes forward.

D&D Context Edit

Trivia Edit

  • This is the only strip in which the entire Southern Pantheon appears:
    • This is the only appearance of four of the Twelve Gods: Ox, Rabbit, Rat, and Snake.
    • This is the first appearance of two of the Twelve Gods: Goat and Horse.
    • This is the final appearance thus far of three of the Twelve Gods: Dragon, Pig, and Dog.
  • It is interesting to note that had Miko had her way in #285 (which shares the same title as the strip preceding this), she would perhaps have become a fallen paladin earlier and Shojo's death just prior to Xykon's invasion would have been avoided.
  • This is the final appearance of Lord Shojo in life, though he has several other appearances in flashbacks, fever dreams, illusory floating heads, ect.
